National Teams and Internships

Grand Aspirations is always seeking volunteers and interns to support the movement for local solutionary initiatives and youth leadership development. You can find your own role in the organization by joining a national team or applying to be an intern.

Applications are now open for the 2013-2014 national teams! Click here to apply to join a national team. Applications are due by Wednesday, August 28, 2013.

Our organization is largely run by teams of national volunteers, who do everything from writing training curriculum, raising funds, coordinating national gathering, and mentoring local leaders. Below are short descriptions of each national team, which you can expand by clicking the links provided.

If you are a student, we are able to help you receive academic credit for your participation on a Grand Aspirations national team by considering it as an internship. We will also accept proposals for internships related to our organizational development that would use your specific skills and interests. For example, if you are in school studying Human Resources, we would gladly consider an internship around HR policy development.

All team roles and internships are unpaid unless otherwise noted.

You can apply directly for a team by using this application. If you have any further questions about the process, please contact Matt Kazinka (
